Why Google Chrome’s helper is hogging up CPU on your MAC

Recently while working on projects I noticed that my MacBook Pro was running a bit unusual. The fan kept hovering for lengthy periods of time and it was aggravating the crap out of me. At times it would hover for about 15 minutes non-stop causing the bottom to heat up. Something seemed out of whack so I started to investigate further.

As Microsoft nears the fourth release of Internet Explorer 9.0 on September 15, 2010 the jig is up.  The competition for a top performing browser has been on-the-run for some time as powerhouse giants such as Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox, & Apple’s Safari are dominating the market.  Consumers are in a dying need of a browser that can perform well on the web and mobile devices.  The chances of exceeding those expectations are, well…..not quite there yet sadly to say.  Although Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0 claims to deliver industry leading functionality with its official upcoming release of the IE 9.0 on September 15, 2010.  While I was out and about on the web scoping out the hidden potential I came across this good find and thought I’d share with you fine folks (You, the reader!).

Remain Cautious of FireFox 3.5.11

FireFox 3.5.11 Bookmarks Issues

Recently I created a new blog post about the comparison of all top web browsers that are available on the web.  This particular one actually pertains to remaining cautious of FireFox 3.5.11 and how it has royally screwed up my desktop.  Well, I shouldn’t quite say “royally” as some may get offended by the language.  Although it has now been about a week since I upgraded to FireFox 3.5.11 and yet to find a trace of my long lost bookmarks.  That’s right folks!  I’ve lost approximately two years worth of bookmarked pages and resource information due to this upgrade.  This is one of those times that I’ll probably get a response on this post stating something along the lines of “Why not use an online service to store your bookmarks?” Exactly!  Why didn’t I use an online bookmarks storage service?
